Erdos and Szemeredi conjectured that if one has a set of n numbers, one must have
either the sumset or product set be of nearly maximal size, cn^2/log(n). In this
talk, he will introduce the sum-product problem in the reals, show previous,
beautiful geometric proofs by Solymosi and Elekes, and discuss some recent progress
by Amirkhanyan, Croot, Pryby and Bush.
